Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
Subaru of Bend has operated in the Central Oregon community for 5 generations. The dealership and the Thomas family strongly believe in giving back to the community and local organizations in the area that are committed to supporting those that can not always help themselves, those that have chosen to stand up for a cause, and those that work every day to make Central Oregon a better place to live.
I am the Director of a local non-profit animal welfare organization whose mission is to keep pets and people together by providing affordable veterinary care. Recently, we were given the opportunity to provide 100 free microchips to cats and dogs in our community. Subaru of Bend was more than willing to host the event at their dealership. Not only did they offer space for the event, they provided all of the chairs, tables and tents for us! They even cooked hot dogs and provided sodas and Subaru pet gear all at no charge to our clients! All of the staff were super friendly and helpful. It meant the world that they treated our clients just like anyone else shopping at the dealership. They made a point to go through the line and say hello to many of the people and their cats and dogs. Many of our clients struggle to provide care for their pets because of financial constraints, so for Subaru of Bend to be so incredibly generous meant a lot not only to our organization but to our clients and their pets. We were able to provide 64 microchips that day, and help to make sure that if those 64 pets ever go missing, they will have a good shot at being reunited with their owners. Big thanks to a local business helping our community! Thank you Subaru of Bend, you guys rock!
The employees at Subaru of Bend enjoyed sharing the Love to Care partnership with Providence and showing their support for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!

Cascades Academy would like to extend its deepest thanks to Subaru of Bend for coming out as the title sponsor of our annual auction this year. This event raises critical dollars for our students and teachers, and provides targeted support to a large percentage of families at our school who receive financial aid. Thank you, Subaru of Bend, for being a leader in our community and for supporting independent education in Central Oregon!
Subaru of Bend chose to take part in the Butterfly Heroes program with the National Wildlife federation in an effort to learn not only about the population drop for the monarch, but also what we could do to help!! We invite you stop by and check out our butterfly garden and pick up milkweed seeds so that you can plant your own Monarch habitat.
We want to thank Subaru of America for helping support Oregon Adaptive Sports (OAS), a Central Oregon Nonprofit organization with the aim to provide life-changing outdoor recreation experiences for people with disabilities. During the winter of 2015-16 we were able to provide 225 individuals the experience of skiing, snowboarding, nordic skiing or snowshoeing concluding the season with an estimated 810 adaptive experiences. That is an IMPACT, one that could not be achieved without the support and empowerment from such organizations like Subaru of America. Thank you for helping us reinforce our mission.
Bend Spay and Neuter Project provides affordable preventative care to cats and dogs at risk of suffering and works to keep pets and people together through a variety of programs. Molly is a cute Pit Bull whose owners move around a lot. Molly was spayed for free through Bend Spay and Neuter Project's Pit Bull program and she receives free food once a month at the HOPE Pet Food Bank sponsored by Bend Pet Express and Bend Spay and Neuter. She doesn't get a chance to have many toys, so receiving one at the Subaru 100 Microchips event was a real treat for her! Her owners were so thankful that they were able to receive a microchip for free so that they could be reunited with Molly if they were ever separated! Thank you Subaru for helping Bend Spay and Neuter Project keep people and pets together for life!
There are many things that we can do on a daily basis to limit our impact on the environment, so everyone at Subaru of Bend and many in the community took advantage of the E-waste event during the month of April. Computers, monitors, cords, vhs players, and much more were collected and sent to a recycling facility for processing and separating. Subaru of Bend thanks everyone for helping us to actively preserve the environment!!
Formed in the early 1970s, the Central Oregon Nordic Club continues to flourish today, with over 200 members. The Club's mission is to provide a means whereby its members and others may cooperate in the enjoyment of outdoor recreation while promoting greater participation in and understanding of the values of outdoor recreation, with emphasis on ski touring and other winter snow sports and hiking. In alignment with that mission, the Club is working with the United States Forest Service to rebuild and possibly relocate the Swampy Snow Shelter in the Deschutes National Forest. Literally thousands of cross-country skiers and "snowshoers" have used the shelter for warmth and protection from the elements while enjoying Central Oregon's outdoors. In the summer months the shelter is a meeting place for mountain bikers. Alas, the Swampy Shelter is rapidly aging and in danger of imminent collapse. The generosity of Subaru of Bend is making it possible for the Club to see this project through to completion. The project enjoys widespread community support and in a few years a new shelter (similar to the rebuilt Nordeen Shelter) will be available. Thank you Subaru for helping to make this project a reality.
The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Oregon and the Bend Ronald McDonald House were so honored to be selected as recipient of the 2014 Share the Love Event. With support from Subaru of Bend ownership, management, and sales staff, customers purchasing a new Subaru in November or December, were encouraged to direct their $250 Subaru donation to us, to serve children and families from across our region. After 79 customers selected our charity, we were awarded $19,898--which could provide lodging for 25 families for a week at our facility. The Bend Ronald McDonald House provides a "home away from home" for families who must travel to Bend seeking medical care for their seriously ill or injured child, age 21 and under, as well as bed-resting, high-risk pregnant mothers. We are so grateful to Subaru and its wonderful customers for "Sharing the Love" with families from across our region, just when they need it most!
Subaru of Bend has been a valued partner for the Special Olympics Oregon Winter State Games at Mt. Bachelor for several years. They not only support Special Olympics financially but provide much needed volunteers as well for this fun event. In addition, they bring a beautiful new Subaru up to the mountain and proudly display it at the ski resort. We very much appreciate the continued support from Subaru of Bend.
Chimps Inc. is a nonprofit, 501(C)3 wildlife sanctuary designed to provide lifetime care to captive chimpanzees rescued or retired from the pet and entertainment industries. We are dedicated to overcoming the exploitation and cruelty that they face through advocacy, conservation, education and outreach. Founded in 1995 in response to the multitude of captive chimpanzees desperately in need of homes, our sanctuary is located in rural Bend, Oregon. Love for the chimps and lynx is never in short supply here at Chimps Inc., but ensuring these precious animals have resources for other necessities - food, medical attention, plus a safe, clean and stimulating habitat - has become more challenging than ever. It costs a staggering $1,200.00 each month to care for, and house, just one chimpanzee. Because we are a non-profit organization and do not receive any federal funding, we rely solely on the generosity of our supporters and fundraising dollars to survive. Matt and Bill at Subaru of Bend have stepped up year after year and supported our sanctuary and the animals that call Chimps Inc. home! Thanks to their generosity we are able to provide the chimps and big cats days that are filled with choices, peace, dignity, companionship and care - worlds apart from the lonely, neglected lives many of them once knew. Thank you Subaru of Bend! Pant Hoots to you and all that you do in our community! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GFgMh1PkyYs
Subaru of Bend has supported Deschutes Children's Foundation's Chip in FORE Kids charity golf tournament for the past two years. Thank you, Subaru, for supporting children and families in our community!
We are so grateful to Subaru of Bend for their support of Cascades Academy! They are truly a leader in our community and we are lucky to have their support!
We were looking for a major increase in the number of sponsor for Central Oregon Pride 2014 because it was our 10th annual pride festival and we wanted to make it bigger and better than ever! Knowing of the national support of Subaru for LGBT organizations we contacted our local retailer and much to our delight they said - we'd love to partner with HDC to help support pride. We then need to find a "limo" to get our drag queens from a hotel to the festival location and so we approached Subaru and suggested it they provided two vehicles they could do it. Subaru said of course and it will be a hoot and it was over the top. Just way way fun and all eyes were on those Subaru's vehicles as they brought 5 well know Oregon drag queens to the festival and stage! We are so thankful for Subaru of Bend.
